Today's anti-viral therapies

The common cold, bird flu, and anti-viral AIDS treatments will all come under the microscope this afternoon at a public lecture marking the start of celebrations around the centenary of pharmacy education in Bath (3WN2.1 at 4.10pm).

Professor Raymond Schinazi, a notable Bath alumnus who has been pivotal in the discovery and development of successful anti-HIV and anti-hepatitis drugs, will speak about the future development of anti-viral agents.

He will be followed by Dr Andrew Watts from the Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology who will talk about his work on a new type of anti-viral treatment for bird flu.

Lectures taking place throughout the week will bring together leading scientists from around the world, including many former students and members of staff, as well from the department's cutting-edge portfolio of research.

Thursday's lectures are focused on pharmacy science, whilst Friday's cover pharmacy practice.
